These were really good. I made them once the way that they are written in order to give an accurate rating, and my rating is based on that. Since then, I've adapted it to make it a bit more health conscious (albeit still very much a "dessert") my only changes have been to use Whole Wheat **Pastry** Flour (slightly pack the cup when measuring) in place of AP flour, and Sucanat (heaping in measuring cup) in place of the brown sugar. Throwing in a high quality chocolate chip doesn't hurt, either (I used Ghiradelli). My family loves it just as much this way, and honestly hasn't even noticed the difference. This is typically the case, as those two ingredients have proven in my home to be pretty precise stand-in's for the one's that I've swapped them for in this and every recipe (slightly packed WW Pastry = AP flour; heaping Sucanat = packed Brown sugar). And it just plain feels a little better serving them such an indulgent treat when I know that the fiber and the non-refined sugar won't shoot their blood sugar into oblivion. Just some FYI for people pondering what healthy adaptations can be made w/o altering the taste/texture.
